As violent crime is top-of-mind for more than 70 percent of Americans, please join us and the Coalition for Cannabis Policy, Education, and Regulation (CPEAR) for an informational networking event highlighting R Street’s Criminal Justice and Civil Liberties Team’s new paper, “How Federal Legalization of Cannabis Can Restore Police Legitimacy and Enhance Public Safety.”

We invite you to enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres over a discussion of how and why federal cannabis reform and descheduling can help police focus on violent crime, disrupt illegal drug markets, better community-police relations and improve police legitimacy.

This event is off the record.
